I'm a girl who reads and have too many books. You’ll know that I do because I will always have an unread book in my bag and my shelves. A girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. A girl who has a list of books she wants to read.

Wishful Wednesday {1}

Okay, so this is my first time joining Wishful Wednesday, but actually I have written all the books that I want to read in spreadsheet. Now I’ll just put it in this post;

1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman is one of the most popular authors in the world, especially for mystery, children, and thriller books. The only book that I have and I have read is The Graveyard Book, which I think doesn’t really very interesting, but I like how he puts something different in his writings. American God is the best book came from him, and I like to read it to compare it with The Graveyard Book.

2. IQ84 (1&2) by Haruki Murakami
I start to like books written by another Asian, and Haruki Murakami’s book is a good choice. I read some news that his books always sold out after some hours after released.

3. North of Beautiful by Justina Chen
I like the books about teen real problems after I read The Perks of Being A Wallflower. This is one kind of it.

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Have you ever take a glance about this book? If you did, you must know why I put this book on this list. If you see some pages of this book, you will see some scary pictures that related to the story. And I mean it- last night I got the ebook, and I was surprised to see the pictures. The pictures look real, with some white-and-black effect. I also put the second book, Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children #2) in my wishlist, but it won’t be published until next year.

5. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
I don’t know why, but I usually get wrong mention Kazuo Ishiguro’s book to Paulo Cuelho, and so do I mention Paulo Cuelho’s book title written by Kazuo Ishiguro. I only read their books once respectively (An Artist in A Floating World by Kazuo and The Alchemist by Paulo). I didn’t think that their books are similar but they have the same author image, in my perspective. Both of them are popular, have a lot of fans of their books. They both get a list on 1001 books you must read before you die. And they are both male (um.. okay).
I didn’t get too much impression from An Artist in A Floating World (same like The Alchemist by Paulo Cuelho), but I try to give another chance of his book (same like Paulo Cuelho). After some researches, I decided to take Never Let Me Go. The book have good rating on Goodreads, and has won Booker Prize Award Nominee in 2005 . The book has been filmed too, starring Andrew Garfield. Moreover, I think this book will be more value than the first one that I’ve read.

6.And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
I think everyone who really updated and loves book with a meaningful story wants this book. This book is almost in everyone’s wishlist.

7. Snow Flower and The Secret Fan by Lisa See
It’s because of Linda! I look at her Buying Monday’s post when she told that she bought this book. I got curious and searched about Lisa See, and when I read the synopsis, I think I’ll like the story. Thanks Linda, for making my wishlist longer! XD

Actually, there are some books that I want too, but I didn’t write it on this list. I think seven is just too much. XD
